the republicans are ready to take right now, steps that will protect america from international conflict, create thousands of new jobs, reduce our budget deficit, and help bring energy prices back down to earth. nationwide, prices have risen by 40 cents by the past month and have doubled since january 2009. a gallon of gas is heading north of $4. that is not just pain at the pump, it is crippling for anyone with bills to pay, groceries to buy, or a loan to me. when gasoline prices go up, families and businesses are stretched thin, budgets are harder to balance, and jobs are destroyed. it energy prices keep climbing, our nation couldst brief slip back into recession just as we are emerging from the last one. the worst part is that our own government deserves much of the blame. international events have pushed prices higher, but our own shortsightedness and restrictions have also played a critical role. some in washington believe higher oil and gas prices driven even higher by proposing taxes are needed to make americans behavior the way they think they should. higher energy prices are there expli
